A tasty cookie with an 'eye' of jam in the middle.



  1. In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Once creamed, add the egg and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  3. In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder.
  4. Add flour to creamed mixture. Beat on low speed until thoroughly combined.
  5. Portion out the dough into round, firm balls. Place on sheet pan. Using the end of a wooden spoon, press down on the dough ball to form wells.
  6. Fill each well with jam. Do not overfill the well, as they will overflow and burn. For the same reason, keep the edges of the dough clean.
  7. Bake at 300°F (160c) for 22-24 minutes, until a light golden brown.
